Preparation in advance:
Sift flour and cookie spices on a working surface, sprinkle the baking powder and brown sugar over and divide the cold butter in flakes. Knead with cold hands to a firm dough. Add bit by bit some milk. Wrap in plastic foil and place overnight in the fridge.
How to prepare:
Preheat the oven to 200°C/395°F (fan oven 180°C/360°F).
Dust the "speculaas" mold with some rice flour, take a little ball from the dough and push it in the speculaas figurs. Cut with a knife flat on the back of the mold the remains off. Push, if used, the sliced almonds carefull in the bottoms of the cookies. Tap the mold on a work surface so the speculaas falls out (if the dough won't release from the mold dust little more for the next portion). Place on a greased baking sheet.
Bake 10-15 minutes.
